trip. let's go to jake tapper. how is the white house responding this morning? >> right now, the message from the white house is one of urging calm, of letting the transition take place. behind the scenes, obviously, the south koreans are very nervous. this is potentially a very volatile situation. the new leader, kim jong-un, is thought to be somebody that could potentially want to prove himself in the coming weeks and months. want to show the military regime, the country, that he is tough, because he's had so much to prove. he's so young, so untested. he's thought to have been one of the reasons we you might remember last year the north koreans torpedoed a south korean naval ship. there's a lot of speculation that the new president, kim jong-un, is one of the reasons that happened. he had just been appointed a
four-star general by his father. and there's the domestic publics of south korea. the leader there was criticized for not responding aggressively enough against that situation. the white house is trying to defuse tensions. >> going forward, how do you think the white house will approach this new young leader? >> i think it will be a wait and see approach. obviously, there was potential for some sort of reconciliation with kim jong-il early in the obama administration. they were debating whether or not to reach out, to try to bring him and his country in from its hermit status into the community of nations. and with the nuclear activities, the testing of a nuclear device, that plan went away. i'm sure that there is potential for something there. but right now, there is just caution. and everybody urging calm, not wanting to accelerate what could
be a very, very volatile situation. just to bring two things into the conversation. one this is not like the foreign policy debate where the u.s. is deciding whether or not to get involved. we're involved. we have 28,000 troops there. the second point has to do with the relationship that the u.s. wants to encourage the new leader to have with the community of nations. >> very important to point that out. thank you, jake. jake tapper at the white house. let's get more from our new global affairs anchor, christiane amanpour. you have reported from north korea several times. this is a volatile situation. that's what the norm former ambassador, bill richardson said this morning. >> it's been everybody's worst nightmare, a sudden collapse of the north korean state. and that people thought might be triggered by the sudden death of
the leader. though he had suffered a stroke in 2008, the fact that he died so suddenly has taken people and caught them offguard. north korea and south korea have years and years of instability between them. china is also very worried. nobody can predict what's going to happen. here in great britain, the foreign secretary said this could be a turning point, urging the north koreans to come back to reengagement with the national community. it's the nuclear situation that is such a great worry. successive american presidents have said they will not tolerate a nuclear north korea. it is a nuclear north korea. can they encourage them to suspend their nuclear program? >> and where this goes depends on how much control the new
leader has. he was only anointed about a year and half ago by h fair. there's some concern he may want to show how tough he is. on the other hand, western officials hold out hope because he was educated for a time in switzerland, that he may be open to engagement. >> precisely. when kim il song died, they were concerned. people are concerned now. there is a new environment now. the world is different than it was when kim jong-il took over. people will take a lot of hope in the ability to bring the new leader, heir apparent, to try to bring him into some kind of dialogue. as you know, there's been many reports of american envoys having talks with the north koreans over the last several months about suspending, again,
their nuclear program. this probably will be on hold for awhile unless the succession plays out. >> thank you, christiane. new video shown on state tv identifies that man as an iranian man from arizona. no comment from washington. it's not the first time iran has claimed to capture a spy. few of those claims can be vary fied. in egypt, more than a dozen people have been killed in violent new street protests. more than 400 people have been injured thus far. the violence flaring over the weekend after these images, in part, showing a female protester being partially stripped and beaten went viral online. a man in new york has confessed to a shocking crime,
burning a grandmother to death in her apartment building elevator. the suspect, the local handy man, wearing a backpack canister holding the gas he used to douse the victim with before setting her on fire with a lighter. he claimed she owed him some $2,000. a sharp increase in the number of young americans being arrested. nearly 1 in 3 americans will be arrested before their 23rd birthday. experts credit no tolerance policies and other adolescent crimes. it's the end of the road for saab today. they filed for bankruptcy liquidation. and on day when ton defeated green bay packers fell from glory. tim tebow just couldn't sustain the magic against tom brady and
the new england patriots. tebow and the brong coast coming off a six-win streak sort of crashed back to reality. three second quarter fumbles didn't help things. they did, though, lose 41-23. in typical tebow fashion, he's keeping the faith. he said it was a big loss. but it only presents bigger opportunities for the team to turn things around. probably helps that the broncos are still in first place this morning. you know who did look good? >> tom brady. did you see him spike that ball? >> i want to take a peek, though, because "snl" had a very special guest star over the weekend. it was, in fact, gjesus, who visited tim tebow. do we not have the clip? there it is. he shows up and says he appreciates the support but maybe if you can stop mentioning my name so much. >> you know who had a great
sunday? your saints. >> and the colts won for the first time. all kugt up caught up on th. now to politics. your voice, your voigt. newt gingrich scrapped a planned weekend off to dispute charges. jon karl is here with a story. >> reporter: by peaking now, gingrich has become target number one for all of the over candidates with just two weeks before the iowa caucuses. he's under fire from every direction. mitt romney made his first appearance on a sunday talk show in nearly two years, using the opportunity to take aim, once again, at newt gingrich. >> he sat down with nancy pelosi and spoke in favor of legislation with climate change. he's been unreliable. and zany. >> reporter: he's under assaults from all the candidates, especially in iowa, where the
airwaves are filled with ads attacking him. >> the fact that he was fined $300,000 for ethics violations -- >> reporter: both michele bachmann and rick perry are touring iowa by bus. >> he may be the grandfather of ear earmarks. >> he was pocketing $1.6 million. >> reporter: she's upset about the way he speaks to her at debates. >> sometimes she doesn't get facts accurately. a lot of what you say isn't true. >> what he said sounded very con descending, like he was talking down to me, as though i was one of his students. >> reporter: gingrich's response, for the most part, he's ignoring all of it. over the weekend, he was in virginia at yet another book signing. this one for the children's book his wife wrote. lately, he barely mentions the
names of his opponents. instead, he's offering history lessons on the courts and the presidency. >> the founding fathers wanted a balance of power between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. >> reporter: over the weekend, he sound like someone who wanted to be professor in chief, not commander in chief. he's promising to run a positive campaign, a tough promise to make when you're under attack. >> we've been following the tax cut fight. 120 million americans with taxes set to go up on january 1st if this tax cut is not extended. it looked like it passed other the weekend in the senate. a huge majority. there's been a revolt among the house republicans. it's in jeopardy. >> there's a real possibility this does not pass.
both sides have dug in. i spoke to a top house democrat, they said the republicans have a choice of doing what passed in the senate taking the blame for 120 million americans having their taxes go up. we've launched a new political website. otusnews.com. we have a political stock market. each contender is being valued based on expert analysis. join the market at otusnews.com. now, prince william and his brother, harry, adding the term hero to their resume. now it's harry to the rescue. nick watt has the latest. good morning, nick. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is the story of the prince and the friend in need. it might end up with prince harry becoming the first british
royal ever to testify in a criminal trial. these chaps are like the fantastical princes of old. >> hello, wembley! >> reporter: easy on the eye and tough. william's day job is high adrenaline choerp pilot. >> they're action boys. it's the sort of thing harry would do. he's a man. >> reporter: whether he's patrolling the mean streets or there's a friend in need on the genteel avenue in london, he's your man. harry was chatting on the phone to an old prep school chum who was taking a stroll in south london. then harry heard a kerfuffle and the line went dead. then i'm imagining a bat car from an underground lair. harry and his security detail
sped to the scene of the crime, searching for the young chap who was, by the way, an you shaller at williams a wedding. he's one of the prince's closest friends. harry headed for the local police station, where friend, minus cell phone was found, safe and well. hooray. and later, the police, not harry, apprehended the alleged mugger. >> had he caught him, no say what would have happened. harry's a tough guy. a tough nut to crack. >> reporter: all's well that ends well. and harry didn't even get his hands dirty. apparently he's back with his 25-year-old lingerie model just the time for the holidays, robin. a tough life being a prince. >> you had to get that in, didn't you? let's get over the sam. a little rainy in london. >> that might not surprise you.. we're -- winter starts thursday morning, just after we roll into

parent did anything. the key is to understand their relationship. the custody issues. the circumstances surrounding little ayla in the last 24 hours. did they take her someplace they normally didn't take her? was there somebody that made a comment to her in a park? is there motivation for one of the parents to move the child, maybe harm the child, hopefully not. that will be the key factor. i just don't buy that this 20-month-old walked out of a house. tths 5 degrees, 10 degrees, she's not been found. you're not going to get very far in pajamas in weather like that. i have worked missing kids where the child has crawled to another location, a crawl space. >> they find them in a relatively short amount of time. >> i don't think that works in this case.

different jobs like mal walmart or subway, a fast food place. i haven't gotten picked up in my area. >> reporter: aubrey, who has a 3-year-old son says working as a phone sex operator is difficult and often disturbing. >> it's nothing i ever thought i would be doing. having to get used to the weirdos out there, married men with children, divorced men, sometimes there's a couple that will call. more recently, there's been a few women calling. >> reporter: at times, the 22-year-old says she feels disgusted speaking intimately with strangers while her son sleeps down the hall. working as a phone actress is as far as she's willing to go. >> i would never want to take off my clothes for anyone or fulfill these fantasies for anyone. >> reporter: aubrey's goal, to save enough money to finish her schooling and get a job as a
medical transcriptionist. lynn says she's thought about getting out of the business. when she does the math, it doesn't add up. >> i've made over $1,000 in a course of a day. >> reporter: those benefits have not been lost on lynn's husband who has come the accept what she does for a living. >> she has the ability to bring if a lot extra. to not have to worry about where we're going to get food or the electric shut off, that's a big deal. >> reporter: while more and more moms are pursuing jobs in the phone sex industry, society has opinions. i found it out on the streets of new york. >> i don't know that i would want to promote that for my children. >> reporter: would you let your kid go play at the house of a friend who worked as a phone sex operator. >> no.
>> reporter: interesting. >> i'm sorry. >> reporter: star says she knows many want to judge her for what she does. to them, she insists her line of work doesn't make her a pad mom. >> i get to spend time with my son. i have to go to an office when i work. but the office is just one room away from my living room. i take a call for a half hour or an hour, i'm back with my son again. >> reporter: is there ever a chance your some could hear you on the phone with one of the callers? >> i talk very softly. it's sexier. >> reporter: star says her 8-year-old has only the vaguest idea of what her occupation entails. when your son asks you, what do you do? >> i get paid to talk on the phone. >> reporter: when he asks more detailed questions, she says she's prepared to come clean. but for now, she, and lynn, and aubrey, say they'll continue to take care of their children by day and make time for dirty talk
at night, all in an effort to keep their kids clothed and a roof over their heads. >> your priority is to financially and emotionally be there for your children. >> i'm doing it for my child. we need the extra money to make sure he has everything he needs. >> so, the women do this from home. is there any danger here that somehow they can be tracked by these guys? >> reporter: the company we spoke to said they take great pains to make sure that the woman's identity is secret. ultimately, though the women say it can get dicey sometimes uncomfortable for them, they feel like they have the final say when to end the call. >> the companies are above board? >> we spoke to rat race rebellion.com. they've been tracking women, getting jobs, placing women in work, especially at home. what they have found is these
companies and women are teaming up quite well. the xraens reputable the. they can actually proiz benefits at some point. they direct deposit into the women's accounts. the women, the stability, the added income outweighs the uncomfortable feeling. >> wow. a brand new trend. elisabeth hasselbeck, thanks so much. >> all righty then. now to the count you for christmas! the ultimate savings secrets with the week end "gma" anchor bianna golodryga. these are designer pieces and discount prices. >> good morning. a search filled with potential traps. you have to be careful. i enlisted the assistance of an expert in style trends. we hit stores, scooped up amazing deals. you can, too. here's how. walk into your local off-priced
retailer -- and you'll find a treasure trove of designer labels at discounted prices. clothes. shoes. and bags at up to 60% off. everything seems like a deal. but sniffing out the real finds at a t.j. maxx, marshall's, or nordstrom rack can be tough. >> it's kind of overwhelming. i walk into a store like this. the first question is where do i start first? first tip, walk in with an open mind. >> you can't come in saying i want a hot pick cocktail dress with lace around the collar. here, it's about the thrill of the find. >> reporter: often, high-end designers make too much of a product or a department store
buys too much. each season, off-price retailers come in and buy them at a discount. they slash the prices. >> i just found these bags. >> this is mark jacobs. >> $895. now it's $296. >> reporter: we got a tur of the supersecret handbag room at t.j. maxx. the same bags department stores will sell full price. each week, stores get up to 10,000 pieces of merchandise. >> ask the manager, what days do the strucks come. >> let's do some shopping. >> let's look at fabulous clothes. >> a great little holiday cob tate dress. >> it's easy to overspend here. give yourself a time limit. >> it can be a bit overstimulating for people when
they come in. because when they start seeing these awesome prices on the designer brands maybe they were coveting from afar, they might think i could have that on. give yourself a time limit. give yourself i would say, like, 30 minutes. >> let's go try them on. >> and then we can edit down. >> i like it. i like the top more than the bottom. >> looking a little bucxom in this. >> reporter: we edited down her picks and scooped up amazing deals. let's add up the numbers. >> this dress, retail $325. i'm scooping it up here for $125. so i was able to get a pair of new heels to go with it. for $that. i'm getting a whole outfit for $150. it's less than half the dress.
